Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic fears Manchester United’s reaction ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash

Massimiliano Allegri’s side claimed a 1-0 Group H win at Old Trafford last time out in October courtesy of a Paulo Dybala goal.

Juventus will now host United at the Allianz Stadium for the return fixture.

The unbeaten Serie A leaders can confirm their status as Group H winners with another three points this week.

But Pjanic is wary of United with the likes of former Juventus star Paul Pogba leading the charge.

“[Pogba is] a great footballer, just like [Nemanja] Matic or [Juan] Mata or Fred,” Pjanic told Sky Italia.

“United is a team of great quality, there are players who can make the difference, so we will have to face them like we did in the first leg.

“I think that we had a very good game at Old Trafford, we could have scored a few more goals.

“We hope that in Turin we will manage to score more, but we must not forget that Manchester is a great team with a great coach.

“It’s a game between two great clubs, nothing is taken for granted in the Champions League.

“We are part of the group of teams that wants to go deep in the competition to win it, but it’s a long journey.”

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international also brushed aside concerns over his slight muscle problem from Juventus’ 3-1 win over Cagliari on Saturday.

The match between Juventus and United will begin at 21:00 (CEST).
